Episode Summary

This episode is supported by Spirit Media, a Creative Marketing Agency. Spirit Media helps hundreds of organisations focusing on their marketing message, tell their story and create brand experiences that create a lasting impact on culture and clients. To learn more visit — I think the most important place to start is with the “Why” – what is your Purpose as a Leader and as a Company. As a leader, the first place to start is with yourself. If you cannot lead yourself then how can you lead others? The first thing to know about a leader is their passion and the values that led them to put importance on those passions. In this episode we speak with William Dolan, President and Creative Director of Spirit Media, a creative marketing agency based in Portland, Oregon. As an Emmy-nominated Producer and Director, William has been a part of producing live events for 500 to 250,000 people, directed national and international TV broadcasts for millions, and has acted as creative consultant for hundreds of organizations, from emerging small businesses to Fortune 500 companies. His extensive background in media and entertainment led him to collaborating with or directing many noted celebrities including Gwen Stefani, The Black Eyed Peas, Maroon 5, Kenny Chesney, President Bill Clinton, Alec Baldwin and hundreds more in the fields of business, sports, ministry, entertainment and politics. In 1999, William had a near-death experience that dramatically challenged his view of life, his career path, and the fields of communication and marketing. Years of research and application led him to the discovery of The 7 Disciplines of Relationship Marketing (the 7DRM System). Today, William shares the 7DRM System through online and live workshops, individual coaching and through the marketing services offered through his creative agency, Spirit Media. William has also shared his insights as a keynote or workshop leader for the National Association of Broadcasters, The National Christian Leadership Alliance, the American Marketing Association and various universities and business groups around the United States. William has been married to his high-school sweetheart, Camilla, for over 30 years. They have five incredible adult children and two grandchildren. Their family also includes several grand pets including his writing companion, Marcella, his attention-starved tabby cat. When William isn’t working with clients or having time with family and friends, you’ll find him either working out, hiking the neighborhood mountain or experimenting in the kitchen trying to refine his latest oatmeal-chocolate chip cookie recipe. A must listen.
